The 900 N. Michigan Shops mall was spiked with West Coast flavor when Space519 hosted Christos Garkinos, the co-owner of Los Angeles-based luxury designer vintage store Decades. Fashion lovers and consignment connoisseurs sifted through gently used goods by Christian Louboutin, Burberry and Louis Vuitton, walking away with one-of-a-kind finds. But the ultimate must-have item of the night? Chanel. “It’s the one thing every girl should have in her closet,” said Garkinos. “I say to a girl, ‘Skip the coffee for a year and you’re almost at a vintage Chanel bag.’ ” GlossedandFound.com founder and creative director D. Graham Kostic hosted the Oct. 4 event, which included a lively game of fashion bingo. Stylish attendees included publicists Amanda Puck and Monika Dixon, the 900 Shops’ Ryan Beshel, ChiCityFashion.com blogger Jena Gambaccini, EDealTree.com co-founder Yana Nirshberg and stylist Helen Berkun.
